In twenty-five years as a rabbi, lecturer, and teacher, Daniel Wolk has explored the heavenly and theological spheres regularly, but he finds his most inspiring truths closer to home. Wolk draws profound lessons from the daily life on Tripp Street, four-tenths of a mile of meandering road in Westchester County, New York. There, Mrs. Martha Parsons, ninety-five-year-old matriarch of Tripp Street, teaches him that we grow old by not growing. The Asplundh man, a master tree pruner who stimulates growth by cutting back branches, offers insight into our own rejuvenating powers. And Teddy of Hopeless Junction, a mutt with real class, invites us all to look at people, not just at their pedigrees. The Dirt from Tripp Street is an inspirational call to the reflective spirit in all of us - and a reminder that we need not travel far to find solutions to our most vexing problems.
